In the long run, banishing the remnants of racism, sexism, or any other odious ideology, is more likely to increase their adoption in the future than to combat it, before even getting into the problem of who gets to decide what's odious, which is a pragmatic concern inseparable from the abstracted question.
Even the best works of art may have poorly dated values. The Odyssey is a highly adventurous great book, but you have to get past some of the sexism in it (how a wife should always be nice and obedient, the man's word matters more).
It opens up a can of worms, admittedly, though. Gandhi had a noted history of racism, etc.
Wow that's the way of the world now, isn't it. Back to banning the golly dolls is next.
I understand the defense that you can't rewrite history and it was a "different time," but I don't really blame a company or organization not wanting to actively covet someone like that.
I mean, "No people lived here. Only Indians," or something to that refrain, is a little less than being insensitive.
Everyone can rest easier today. That horrible racist, Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the Hitler-esque series of books, Little House on the Prairie, has had her literary awards stripped away for being insensitive to 2018 values when she wrote books almost 100 years ago about her childhood as a pioneer settler.

Another victory for the good guys!

So much red: it hurts.
Theyíve been deferring drug smuggling cases to state courts along the border because of limited resources, which I think will eventually cause those states to reassess their laws. Then from there itís just a matter of time before the feds have to give it up, especially if they keep up this zero tolerance bit
I have a feeling Trumpís crackdown on immigration will eventually lead us to change our federal drug policy. Still years away obviously
